Breakfast w/Greg: Dustin Lance Black grammar lesson; A Meredith Baxter book? Two really hot Santas
Dustin Lance Black was among those honored this week at the PEN Center USA Literary Awards in Beverly Hills. In his acceptance speech, the Oscar winning screenwriter of Milk told the crowd about how he recently was invited by the English department of a Michigan college to speak there then uninvited by an unfriendly administrator.
According to the Los Angeles Times, when Lance received word that he receiving the PEN award, it inspired him to rent a theater near that college and screen Milk and to discuss LGBT equal rights.
He also mentioned that he’d seen anti-gay graffiti elsewhere in his travels — “You A Fag” it read. “Well you’re right,” he said, “but at least you could have given me a verb.”
Pictured below is Lance with Walter Mirisch, fellow PEN honoree Elmore Leonard and Milk producer Bruce Cohen.
